There are two main categories of rare earth magnets: neodymium iron boron magnets (NdFeB magnets) and cobalt boron magnets (SmCo magnets).
Rare earth magnets are usually composed of a variety of elements, including rare earth elements and transition metal elements. The XRF analysis method can be used to quickly confirm and identify rare earth magnets, determine their composition and composition, and ensure product quality and compliance.
There are precious metals such as platinum, palladium and rhodium on the surface of the catalytic converter carrier. Precious metals are expensive. Recycling requires the extraction of platinum, palladium, rhodium and other rare metals in the catalytic converter for recycling and reuse. These precious metals are mainly used in medical, Electronics, aerospace, automotive, chemical industry and other high-tech fields.
The catalyst analyzer can quickly measure elements in automobile catalysts on site and quickly sort catalytic converters with different values to effectively recover precious metals such as platinum, rhodium, and palladium, so that the recycling price can be accurately calculated.
Because of precious metals high price and scarce reserves, it is very important for consumers, precious metal material application companies and asset appraisal institutions to ensure the content and purity of precious metals. Traditional analysis faces problems such as long time consumption, high cost, and sample destruction during detection. In response to such problems, LANScientific provides integrated solutions for non-destructive rapid testing of precious metals to testing institutions, quality inspection institutes, jewelry companies, raw material factories, electronic technology companies including portable XRF precious metal analyzers, handheld XRF precious metal analyzers, desktop XRF precious metal analyzers, etc.
Materials Identification (PMI) is a basic non-destructive testing (NDT) method used to verify that supplied materials comply with appropriate standards and specifications. Specifically, PMI is used to confirm that the percentage of key elements in the chemical composition of metal parts is correct to ensure that the material's corrosion resistance and other properties meet requirements. XRF is the most common PMI method, and the portability of handheld devices allows PMI to be performed on-site in a production plant or on the factory floor. Handheld XRF instruments scan materials and provide chemical composition and alloy grade designations.
In order to use scrap metal to produce new materials, different types of metal must be sorted and separated into uniform metal parts. One of the most commonly used scrap sorting technologies is handheld XRF. Fast and accurate metal alloy classification and analysis is critical to maximizing scrap yard efficiency and profitability. Today, the quality requirements for scrap metal are higher than ever before, and sorting errors can result in entire shipments being rejected and lost business.
